The dynamic world premiere of Accumulation is a transcontinental performance project by Co.ERASGA Dance, in collaboration with participating artists from the United States (New York), Canada and France. Body, dance, movement, sound, costumes, sculpture and visual objects were all components in the making of this unique live performance event.
This timely and creative production aims to fuse a hybrid of multiple disciplines to create a new performance perspective and experience.
Accumulation is a creative venture that speaks to the challenges of art and environmental stewardship. Can we raise and push our minds, resources, practices and concerns to attune our creativity and respond to our alarming and devastating fragile ecology?
The piece seeks to question our human relational, place, and time on environmental concerns presently faced by an alarming future never witnessed before in our natural world.
The project sets human-made objects, debris and nature’s remnants to represent our surroundings, an encounter of our human consumption and excess. Centre stage is the deterioration of the natural world, a landscape for a hunting, moving dance and sculptural choreography.
In Accumulation, the assemblage, association, manipulation, contemplation and recycling of ‘stuff’ stirs the creative and artist’s consciousness which becomes our realization and response to an earthly crisis.
